It's electric: Town of Penfield adds first EV to fleet

The Town of Penfield recently added its first electric vehicle to the fleet as it accepted delivery of a Chevrolet Bolt on Friday, June 16.

The new EV will be predominantly used by the Assessor’s Office and replaces an aging vehicle previously used by the department. A newly installed charging station behind the Town Hall will allow for quick and convenient charging of the vehicle.

“I am really excited to have this new EV in our fleet,” said Town Supervisor Debbie Drawe.  “This eco-friendly vehicle will not only help us work toward our sustainability goals but also improves operating efficiency by reducing gas consumption.”
